Do You See Things Differently As You Grow in Your Faith?
Written by T.M. Gaouette | December 28, 2012
Many people grow up in Christian families, attending church together and following their parents’ Christian traditions. When a child transitions into adulthood, they may continue on with what’s familiar regarding their faith, and with similar passion and devotion. Or they may continue on simply because it’s what they’re used to, but their devotion is lacking.
Then there are those who just set their faith aside the minute they leave their family home, deeming that the Christian life was their “parents’ thing” and not their own.
It’s usually later in life when many of these same people turn back to their faith, and for various reasons. It’s the moment in which they begin to grow in their faith again.
Following is a clip in which Candace Cameron Bure discusses when she began growing in her faith.
For Candace, it was when she became a parent that she began evaluating her faith. I can totally relate to that. Additionally, she realized that her eating habits were a reflection on her relationship with God, because her body is a gift from God. She realized she should be taking care of that gift.
Ultimately, everything in our lives change when we grow with God, such as our attitude, our self-discipline and our character. When we grow with Christ, we see everything differently, don’t you think?
Hey sweet girls! Was there a moment in your life when you felt your relationship with God begin to grow again? Did you see everything differently? How?
